Get your Feet Wet: Understanding our Wetlands

Post by Sharbot » Fri Mar 18, 2016 3:41 pm

On March 31 in Kingston, get ready to wade in for an active learning experience. The Frontenac Stewardship Foundation presents - Get your Feet Wet: Understanding our Wetlands. Wetlands protect our water and supply habitat for diverse animals, birds and plants.

Dan Mansell and Angus Norman - wetland specialists - will present a powerpoint show on the story of wetlands, as part of the 2015-16 Seminar Series for the Frontenac Stewardship Foundation. Dan and Angus are biologists, with many years of experience at MNR, now retired. For twenty years, they have taught the Water Management & Wetland Restoration Course in Eastern Ontario and are still going strong.

Topics:
• Ecology of wetlands
• Ecological history of Frontenac County
• Benefits of wetlands
• Implications of climate change

Join us on Thursday, March 31 at 7 pm at the Invista Community Centre at 1350 Gardiners Road in Kingston.
All are welcome at no cost, but donations are gratefully accepted; any donations of $10 and over will receive a tax receipt.
